TOWN OF PITTSFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - Investigators continue the search for a Pittsfield woman who's been missing for over a week.

59-year-old Victoria Prokopovitz was last seen at her home on Kunesh Road April 25th.

"We were active all weekend long, searching back around the residence and also some local quarries in the area," says Brown County Sheriff's Capt. Jeff Sanborn. "We don't want to leave any stone unturned."

A cadaver dog picked up a scent not far from her home at a quarry south of Pulaski. The Brown and Door County dive teams went there Monday. Sanborn says it's part of their push to utilize all available resources.

"We've utilized cadaver dogs, to dive teams, to the DNR with different technology," says Sanborn.

Prokopovitz is considered to be endangered, due to suffering from depression and not taking medication with her. Authorities haven't suspected foul play in her disappearance and remain hopeful.

"We've had in the past people just show back up, at the homeless shelters, in different hospitals or mental health institutions or different locations where they don't know they're missing," Sanborn says. "We're still optimistic."

Prokopovitz has no vehicle and is 5'6", 117 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. If you have seen Prokopovitz or know of her whereabouts, you're asked to contact the Brown County Sheriff's Office Investigative Division at (920) 448-4230.
